Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have mixed views on the news from Metro, that midfielder Mikel Arteta is set to join Real Sociedad in the summer.
Real Sociedad boss David Moyes has experience of working with Mikel Arteta during their time at Everton, and they could be set for a reunion in the summer.
Arteta’s contract at the Emirates Stadium expires in the summer and he looks set to leave the north London club in search of regular first-team football.
The 32-year-old has struggled for first-team action this season at the club, with the Spaniard being injured for the majority of the 2014/15 campaign.
A plethora of Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern over by the dartboard have mixed views on the deal, with the majority saying he is not good enough and is too old now to continue in the role, whilst a few Gooners feel he can still do a job in the defensive midfield position.
